Sorry if treading on ground that has been covered before, but I'm listening to "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" while I work and although I've heard it at least 1000 times over the past 30 odd years, it never fails to deliver. Curious what other non-Dead releases folks rely on that never seem to disappoint. In recent years, Richard Thompson's "Mock Tudor" fits the bill.

A quick note to thank you for spotlighting Burgers a year or so ago. That album got me on a major Hot Tuna tear for the next 6 months. Count this as one of the reasons I love this place (though I'm almost purely a voyeur on this site due to lack of time and nothing original to add). Keep On Truckin'!

do you like mirror ball and freedom? that's one of my favorite periods in neil's long diverse career.

i would also nominate mr. young for consideration in the greatest guitarists thread. next to dylan, he is my favorite singer/songwriter. i don't care if he doesn't have the best chops. he's got fuckin' heart and soul.

perhaps my favorite concert i've ever been to was a neil young show. 90 minutes of just neil with a harmonica, piano, and a different guitar for almost every song. set break. and 90 more minutes of electric face-melting neil. and he's still very good, at age 66.

i find your abb pick to be interesting. big dickey fan? that album always gets overshadowed by the first few albums with duane, but it really is just as good. i always loved dickey's songwriting. liz reed is one of my favorite musical compositions ever. another one of the best concert moments of my life was john scofield joining the brothers at the beacon, for a 20 min liz reed. looking around and seeing everyone stare motionless in total awe was quite a sight.

I do like Freedom a lot, Mirrorball not so much. The other Neil Young album that came close to being included in my ‘go to’ list was On the Beach – I just absolutely flat out love that one from beginning to end.

I agree with you that Neil is an awesome guitar player, and a very good example of the point you made elsewhere about guitar greatness being about more than just technical ability, it’s about putting your heart and soul into what you do and connecting with the hearts and souls of your audience – Neil does that big time.

As to my ABB pick – yes I like what Dickey Betts brings to the table here (ably supported by Les Dudek on Rambling Man and Jessica) but that’s not really why I picked it. I picked Brothers and Sisters because there isn’t a single track on there that outstays its welcome – you can’t always say that about 30 minutes of Mountain Jam really. (Just as an aside, while I’m typing this I’ve got Lovelight 2-13-70 playing and I’m thinking ‘this is really going on way to long – fast forward…’). In any event Fillmore and Peach will remain permanent fixtures in my collection.

One that ALWAYS does it for me is EKTINowhere, N Young...surprised by all the other choices for him, but I always felt this was his best effort, by far, as it comprises most all the range he exhibits down the line. Since 1970, it was always available to provide a tune or two for a "hits tape" for the car, etc.

Additional favs, listed below (as noted by MJ, these may not be yours, and due as much to the experience at the time they came out, etc., etc., they ended up sticking with me):

EKTINowhere, NYoung
HTrails, QMS
DGears, CREAM
WNext, Who
AmBeat, DEAD
Anthology, LKottke (78 double album?)

Various artists, from which 1-3 hits became favs (ie, no longer buying albums, CDs, but just accumulating ind songs--travesty, I know):

Clash, VFemmes, THeads, ECostello, Police, WhStripes.

"Queensryche "Operation Mindcrime" (sorry, the little metal head in me still breathes)"

great pick! during a short-lived metal phase i once went through, that album was a regular in my rotation. tate has one of the greatest voices of all time. i rarely listen to metal anymore, but occasionally i am in the mood, and it always is enjoyable and brings me back to some good times.

i'll also throw in:
number of the beast
powerslave
screaming for vengeance
rust in peace
kill 'em all
blizzard of ozz

although they are not really considered with bands like metallica, priest and maiden, deep purple was one of the earliest forms of metal, and has always been my favorite metal band, if you can call them that. machine head is one of the greatest albums ever made. deep purple fucking rules live. seen them a few times, and they were impressive even in their old age. i would do anything to have seen them in their prime. ian gillan is one of my favorite vocalists ever. child in time always gave me chills. as did his version of gethsemane, from jesus christ superstar.

I saw the Powerslave tour at Radio City, but I dont really have the desire to listen to Maiden anymore. Ozzy is the king as far as I'm concerned and I like Diary of a Madman the best (and Speak of the Devil for the Sabbath stuff). Unleashed in the East is my favorite Priest album. I've got to go with Master of Puppets for Metallica's best but I like Kill em All as well.

Rainbow Rising is Blackmore's best metal stuff.

Sneaking Sally should be considered part of the Meters' catalog - with Lowell George at the helm. Agreed that it never gets old.

I was looking for albums that never fail no matter my mood and that Palmer fits the bill.

Yea, but the Meters are the band on a bunch of tunes with Lowell on board (as is Steve Windwood). However, I did get turned on to the album by being into Little Feat.

BTW, Forrest George, Lowell's son, was a fixture at lots of GD shows in the 80s.

I don't want to overstate it, but could it really be, that under Gottfried, THE PACK IS BACK? I damn sure hope so (other than when we meet - though even in crap seasons the Pack always seems to be able get us). I know it's early, but they are showing a lot of fight - and the talent is there.
